Food Pantry

Recognizing the challenge that students may experience getting enough food, Brooklyn College’s Food Pantry opened on November 24, 2015. The Food Pantry offers healthy food selections to enrolled Brooklyn College students who may be experiencing hunger, so that they can focus on their academic studies. All applications to the Food Pantry are confidential. We are excited to assist you!
